Cynosure's Accolade(TM) Workstation for Pigmented Lesions Receives Korean Regulatory Approval
Date:5/9/2008

WESTFORD, Mass., May 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cynosure, Inc. (Nasdaq: CYNO), a leading developer and manufacturer of a broad array of light-based aesthetic treatment systems, today announced that it has received market approval from the Korea Food & Drug Administration (KFDA) for its flagship Accolade(TM) workstation for the removal of pigmented lesions.

Introduced in the first quarter of 2008, the Accolade is the third Cynosure flagship product approved for marketing in South Korea, following the Elite(TM) Aesthetic Workstation for laser hair removal and the Cynergy(TM) Workstation with MultiPlex(TM) Technology for the treatment of dermatological vascular conditions. All three workstations are being distributed in South Korea through Seoul-based OrientMG Ltd.

"As one of the world's major aesthetic markets, we believe South Korea represents a valuable growth opportunity for our products, and we are excited about the receipt of KFDA approval for our newest flagship product," said Cynosure President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Davin. "Due to the prevalence of dermal melanoses among Asian populations, South Korea is a primary target market for Accolade. We also are pursuing regulatory approval in other Asia Pacific countries, including China."

Accolade is a high-powered 755 nm, Q-switched Alexandrite laser for the removal of pigmented lesions. The unique combination of various spot sizes and the laser's high repetition rates allow for rapid treatment.

"With its power and precision, Accolade is well-suited for treating the full spectrum of benign pigmented lesions including Nevus of Ota, solar lentigenes, freckles and sun-damaged pigmentation," said Dr. Joon-hong Park of the Maymorning Clinic in Sungnam City, Kyunggi-Do, South Korea. "The accuracy of the aiming beam makes the Accolade easy to handle- treatment is delivered with specificity, minimizing side effects to the surrounding tissue and maximizing patient comfort."
